Lecture - America's Water Policy: Colonial to Current

December 8, 2022 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Join our friends at French & Pickering Trust at  Historic Yellow Springs (1685 Art School Road, Chester Springs, PA 19425) for this presentation offering an overview of federal, state and local regulatory frameworks for managing water resources, and will review some of the key events that shaped the national dialogue on conservation and the environment over the past few centuries.

Every day, each of our lives is impacted by federal, state and local water policy. The quality of the water we drink, the health of the streams that flow through our neighborhood and even the way that rain runs off our streets are all influenced by water policy decisions. The way we manage and regulate water has been largely shaped by major events that changed the ways Americans viewed natural resources, the environment and conservation, including the role of government in these spheres. 

This lecture will be presented by Cory Trego, Project Environmental Scientist at Gennett Fleming, and Secretary of the North Coventry Township EAC.
